EPP has been experiencing a revival for several years now, being used to make patterns with geometrical or symmetrical shapes. But you can also use this technique to make quilts based on patterns that have free formed shapes. This technique is relaxing, even meditative and provides high-quality results at the same time. In this class, Barbara will introduce you to EPP using on-repetitive shapes. We will alter designs to fit our own ideas. Barbara will show how to make and use your own templates and how to sew them together with no stitches being visible on the top.
